Transnational Religions: The Roman Catholic Church in Brazil & the Orthodox Church in Russia

Show Summary Details

Preview

This essay examines several current issues facing the Roman Catholic Church in Brazil and the Russian Orthodox Church in the post-Soviet, multi-ethnic republic that is today called the Russian Federation. To the extent possible, I shall treat both the issues and institutions comparatively, even if selectively and almost solely out of a concern for contemporary “transnational” religions, a subject I have explored since the mid-nineteen eighties and do so again here.
